First Fill------and other things

So I had my first fill. Can I say--PIECE OF CAKE??????  Easy peasy--nothing to it--pinch, pop, done--uneventful!It's two days of liquids for me!!!

I had some Grandma Time the last three days.  (I tell ya this Grandparent Gig is AWESOME! Did not know my heart could hold so much love for such a little bitty person!)  Anyway...my diet was not good...I strayed into the World of Before...chocolate brownie with ice cream, a Wendy's Frostie, a Lil Debbie's Oatmeal creme pie, and eyeballed everything, no measuring. 

I was scolding myself and kicking my butt for such poor food choices when this came to mind:
1--it was a 1" brownie and a tablespoon of ice cream
2--it was a child's Frostie - in a 2" tall cup
3--it was one oatmeal pie
4--it was one serving spoon size of food

After looking at all this, I realized I DID make good choices.  I was satisfied with these smaller portions! I would have laughed my head off at these portion sizes in the World of Before and totally pudged out!!!!  Amazing!  And the best part--- I was full! 

Oh and I weighed today---I've lost another pound!  Maybe I am starting that love affair that y'all talk about with my band now.
